Until Leaves Fall In Paris - by Sarah Sundin

As the Nazis march toward Paris in 1940, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. Lucie struggles to run Green Leaf Books due to oppressive German laws and harsh conditions, but she finds a way to aid the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.

Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. After they meet in the bookstore, Paul and Lucie are drawn to each other, but she rejects him when she discovers he sells to the Germans. And for Paul to win her trust would mean betraying his mission.

Master of WWII-era fiction Sarah Sundin invites you onto the streets of occupied Paris to discover whether love or duty will prevail.

My Thoughts: I've been a fan of this author for years now. I was never a history fan when in school, but now I love reading historical fiction. The people and places come to life in her novels, and she always weaves in great interpersonal stories that draw me deeper into her novels. This book was no exception. I loved the ballerina who struggled to do the right thing, while struggling with knowing what the "right thing" to do was. It would be hard to be in her situation to want to support friends, follow her passion, and also follow her heart. While the relationship trajectory may be somewhat easy to predict, I still really love these novels by Sarah Sundin.

Thank you to Revell Books for a chance to read this novel early!
